Producer López Linares comments that "it was a great discovery that there were so many photos of Sorolla, suddenly we had an incredible photographic archive, with magnificent photos of him painting, when he was older, on the beach, family photos ... It was all very well documented. It's a pleasant surprise for the documentary to find you with this photographic richness, it's wonderful."
